Common measurements list
In ThingsML there is a measurement index list, allowing you to send only the index for a measurement instead of the full name and unit which is required in SenML.
If you don't use ThingsML, it is still best practice to use the common measurement names and units in your solution. With this you achieve higher compatibility with current and future data processing features in KPN Things.
